Lauren Healey: Capturing Shadows

Capturing shadows: At the end of September 2010 Lauren Healey was given a Publishing Award her MFA show, enabling her to collaborate with us and experiment. The nature of these experiments in highly dependent on the British weather so we have imposed no time constraints on their production.

Assistant: Rachael Kidd

Newcastle University Fine Art under-graduate Rachael Kidd joined us last year as an assistant. Rachael has been developing her stone graining powers, most recently preparing and re-surfacing the stone for George Shaw (see bottom photo). Other tasks include assisting at the press, dusting the silver powder on the lightning bolts for Ant Macari’s ‘Yaya Con Dios’ and printing some letterpress. Rachael will shortly be creating some pieces of her own and the placement has become a LifeWorkArt module as part of her studies.
